Qualification task it to implement one protocol using provided API, so I 
don't understand your complaining as this requirement is met. "Real" 
project work is to implement this feature for HTTP (which is not 
standardized as far is i know) and for FTP LIST command fallback (which 
is not standardized neither), and handle some rare cases I surly didn't 
included in my patches. Also you may refer my previous mails about 
extending this project as some *easy* work is already done.

Just comment from me; for people who participate in ffmpeg for some 
time,  your comment is just like your comments are (rude, demotivating, 
and ofter useless), but for students who supposed to have some help and 
support here, your comment is just stupid. If you think this project is 
stupid, then you should've removed it from the project list before 
someone involved into it.
